Berlin Exhibit :: Diversity Destroyed
If you have an interest in Wiemar Germany, then don't fail to check out Diversity Destroyed: Berlin 1933 - 1938 - 1945. It looks at what happened in Germany and to German culture in the years after the Nazi's came to power.
According to its website, "Today, Berlin enjoys a global reputation as a modern, tolerant and culturally diverse metropolis. The 2013 Theme Year 'Diversity Destroyed' will endeavor to communicate the importance and sensitive nature of these democratic values and achievements. The forthcoming Theme Year will highlight the social and cultural diversity that was destroyed in Berlin under the National Socialist regime in the years following 1933."
Wikipedia has a rather extensive page on the history of the Wiemar Republic, the German state which existed between 1918 and 1933. Louise Brooks worked in Germany at the time, during the years 1928 - 1929.
